Kansas State Wildcats Game Notes
Will Howard was 19-for-29 passing for 235 yards and three touchdowns during Saturday’s 59-25 victory over Baylor. He also had three rushes for negative three yards with one touchdown.
Howard’s three touchdown passes moved him ahead of Josh Freeman (45 passing TDs) for the all-time school record. He also recorded his fifth game of the season with at least three touchdown passes, tying Freeman for the same mark. Even though Howard watched from a back-up role midway through the season, he seems to be the undisputed leader of this team now. Kansas State is playing some of their best football and will play in-state rival Kansas on the road next week.
